Samsung Galaxy S6 rumors: metal frame, not unibody, glass rear panel

Galaxy S6 concept

According to Korean tech site DDaily [via GforGames], a “Samsung Electronics official” said that neither the Galaxy S6 nor the Galaxy S6 Edge will come with a metal unibody chassis.

The aluminum will reportedly be used only for the frame, similar to the Note 4 or Alpha, and the back panel will be made ​​of glass.

The choice would be motivated by the fact that Samsung doesn’t want to have too many devices similar to those of the Galaxy A range.

Both smartphones are also said to be equipped with non-removable batteries.

The new design would mark a change for Samsung who has stuck to plastic for its casings so far.
